Could The Good Wife spinoff feature a Kalinda surprise?
“You never know, you never know,” the 44-year-old actress told ET in the Big Apple on Monday. “I mean, right now, probably not because I’m working [on Blindspot]. But if there's anything I’ve learned in this business, you never know what’s gonna happen.”
In The Good Fight, a major financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia (Rose Leslie), while simultaneously wiping out her mentor, Diane’s, savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca at one of Chicago’s top law firms.
With Panjabi’s new gig, Blindspot,
filming in the same city as The Good Fight,
it sure wouldn’t be too difficult --geographically speaking -- to secure her for a brief cameo. Whether she wants to or not is another story.
The Good Fight will premiere new episodes on CBS’ digital On Demand and live-streaming service, CBS All Access, following a broadcast debut on CBS in February 2017.
“[Diane Lockhart] was one of those characters, other than Will Gardner, that really seemed to pull audiences in,” Robert told ET at the time. “There’s a certain solidity to her and a certain sense that she commands a room, but also there’s a sensitivity beneath it. So it was a no-brainer to bring her onto the spinoff.”
